The European Union’s plans to invest €43 billion ($47 billion) in its semiconductor industry by 2030.

The goal of the plan is to double the EU’s share of the global semiconductor market to 20%.

The EU Semiconductor Plan for 2030, known as the European Chips Act, is aimed at boosting Europe’s competitiveness and resilience in semiconductor technologies and applications.

The initiative is designed to support both the digital and green transitions by strengthening Europe’s technological leadership in this area. The plan recognizes the importance of chips as strategic assets in key industrial value chains, with new markets emerging for the chip industry, including highly automated cars, cloud services, the Internet of Things, connectivity, space, defence, and supercomputers. This importance is underscored by the fact that in 2020, 1 trillion microchips were manufactured globally, with the EU accounting for 10% of this market. The European Chips Act responds to recent global semiconductor shortages that have affected various sectors, from automotive to healthcare devices, and it aims to reduce the extreme global dependency on a limited number of players in the semiconductor value chain​1​.

The European Chips Act will mobilize more than €43 billion in public and private investments to address semiconductor shortages, prepare for, anticipate, and swiftly respond to any future supply chain disruptions. The plan’s specific goals include:

  • Strengthening Europe’s research and technology leadership towards smaller and faster chips.
  • Implementing a framework to increase production capacity to 20% of the global market by 2030.
  • Building and reinforcing capacity to innovate in the design, manufacturing, and packaging of advanced chips.
  • Developing an in-depth understanding of the global semiconductor supply chains.
  • Addressing the skills shortage, attracting new talent, and supporting the emergence of a skilled workforce​1​.

The Chips Act is expected to result in additional public and private investments of more than €15 billion, complementing existing programs and actions in research and innovation in semiconductors. In total, more than €43 billion of policy-driven investment will support the Chips Act until 2030, which will be broadly matched by long-term private investment​1​.

The act proposes a range of measures, including investments in next-generation technologies, providing access to design tools and pilot lines across Europe for prototyping, testing, and experimenting with cutting-edge chips, and establishing certification procedures for energy-efficient and trusted chips. It also aims to create a more investor-friendly framework for setting up manufacturing facilities in Europe, support innovative startups, scale-ups, and SMEs in accessing equity finance, foster skills, talent, and innovation in microelectronics, provide tools for anticipating and responding to semiconductors shortages and crises, and build semiconductor international partnerships with like-minded countries​1​.

As for the next steps, Member States have begun coordinating efforts to understand the current state of the semiconductor value chain across the EU, anticipate potential disturbances, and take corrective measures to overcome the current shortage until the Regulation is adopted. The European Parliament and Member States will need to discuss the Commission’s proposals on a European Chips Act. If adopted, the Regulation will be directly applicable across the EU​1​.

The EU’s plan to manufacture chips by 2030 is a significant step in the bloc’s efforts to become more self-sufficient in critical technologies. The plan has the potential to create jobs, boost the EU’s economy, and reduce its reliance on foreign suppliers.

Here are some of the benefits of the EU’s plan to manufacture chips by 2030:

  • Increased self-sufficiency: The EU will be less reliant on foreign suppliers for chips, which could help to reduce the risk of supply disruptions.
  • Economic benefits: The plan could create jobs and boost the EU’s economy.
  • Technological leadership: The EU could become a leader in the development and manufacturing of semiconductors.

The EU’s plan to manufacture chips by 2030 is an ambitious goal, but it is one that could have significant benefits for the bloc and wider afield.
